“My son Jacob and I wish to thank all of my colleagues and friends who encouraged me to take part in this 200-km bike-a-thon,” declared Stephan. “Their donations allowed me to raise over $9,000 that will go directly to the Alberta Cancer Foundation. My goal was to double the $2,500 minimum donation, but WOW! A big THANK YOU to everyone for your generosity!”

The Okotoks Western Wheel, Stephan’s hometown newspaper, published an article relating Jacob’s brave fight against cancer and his father’s efforts to help fund research, care and treatment in order to fight the scourge that is cancer.
